I have always loved looking at old pictures, and going through my grandma’s albums was a highlight of my summer. I’ve been doing genealogy research, and putting faces to names makes the project seem much more personal.

Part of my mom’s family is from Iowa, and when I saw the book Sunday Afternoons on the Porch by Everett W. Kuntz at for me, for you, I had to add it to my wish list. The book features pictures of Ridgeway, Iowa from 1939 to 1942, and seem very iconic of the time and location. I hope the rest of the book is as captivating as these photos.
